    One of our hens laid an egg today with odd round spot on it the wdges of this spot look sort of wrinkled. I read the article on common egg deformities, but didnt really see a category this would fit into. From reading the other common issues, im guessing maybe, excess or lack of calcium? It doesnt feel soft.[​IMG]

    Sometimes eggs are malformed, it's usually due to just a glitch or sometimes the hen takes a bad landing or fall, and sometimes one egg bumps into the other in the system as they are prone to releasing multiple yolks early in the spring.
